  • Product Description

The study is on New Testament feminist interpretation of 1Timothy 2:8-15. It seems the place of women in the churches today is very much influenced by how this passage is used. A careful reading of the passage seems to suggest a different perspective with regards to how women are perceived in the churches today. It appears women are as suggested by the passage, inferior to men. Although there is clear evidence of woman disciples during Jesus’ time, which Jesus treated equally as men; The passage seems to be silent of this view. The passage therefore seems to be echoing a male human being's views about woman which is androcentric. Moreover, the biblical reading of the creation stories also look biased in this passage. This book seek to interrogate 1Timothy 2:8-15 with the intent to redress patriarchal connotations in the passage which are oppressive to women. It is the argument of this book that women and men are equal and should occupy equal positions in church. An alternative interpretation of the passage which spells out Women and men authority as expressed in Christianity is welcome and healthy in today's relations.
